Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

With no less than 23 world premieres on the agenda, the Zurich Film Festival is once again confirming its determination to introduce audiences to all things new in the world of film. This edition’s Covid-compatible programme, unspooling on the Limmat, boasts no less than 165 films hailing from 47 countries: 23 world premieres (many of which are of European works), 11 international premieres and 4 European premieres. And the crucial point in all this? Over half the films selected for the Festival’s competitions are coming courtesy of women directors.

, which allows us to enter into the psyche of a young athlete – but also in the New World View line-up, which is dedicated in its entirety to the new generation of French filmmakers. The latter section comprises 17 entertaining, adventurous and brilliant productions which perfectly capture the spirit of this exciting and upcoming form of cinematography. The cherry on the cake of this tribute will be the Golden Icon Award, set to be handed to the extraordinary Juliette Binoche, and the A Tribute to Award, which will go to the equally extraordinary Maïwenn, who will be in attendance to present her new film DNA [+lee también:

, that of Nina Stefanka and her work Miraggio (world premiere) and that of Karin Heberlein who’s presenting a world premiere of Sami, Joe and I. All three films are participating in the competitive Focus section dedicated to Swiss, German and Austrian titles. The Festival’s other competitive sections are also full of works (a total of 38) by young directors. Overall, upwards of 100 first, second and third films by emerging directors are set to be presented at the Festival.

And an impressive number of European films will be battling it out for this year’s Golden Eye awards in the two competitive sections dedicated to fiction and documentaries. In the first category - in addition to the afore-mentioned French works - we find three productions hailing from Nordic shores: Danish offerings Shorta [+lee también:
